BENEFITING: NATICK ROTARY CHARITABLE CORPORATION
ORGANIZER: NATICK ROTARY CHARITABLE CORPORATION
EVENT: 2016 Boston Marathon
We have all been touched by cancer. No doubt you have supported someone, a friend, a family member, a coworker, through their cancer journey. In the community of Natick, there is a special not-for-profit organization that is a place to turn for cancer patients and their families when the disease strikes called Embrace a Family. They are dedicated to providing Natick families, struggling with cancer, direct access to a network of support and information. All of the funds that I raise will be used to help families defray some of the emotional and financial hardships incurred when faced with a cancer diagnosis and its treatment.
The money that you donate will be used in many different ways including:
- Providing financial support for non-medical expenses such as transportation, groceries, child care, utility bill assistance, and other expenses that can ease the strain on a family battling cancer.
- Offering preventive care, for example, by giving women easy access to a mammogram at the annual Dana-Farber Mobile Mammography Van event in Natick.
- Sharing support and resource information such as nutrition, web links, and local support groups run by licensed professionals.
Thank you for contributing to Embrace a family and for helping families who need support at a very tough time.
